In 1962, British Railways Eastern Region introduced a fleet of twenty-two Deltic diesel electric locomotives. This poster was produced to mark the centenary of the Flying Scotsman service and project the modernity of the new Deltics. The poster shows an illustration of The Flying Scotsman in 1862 (above), rendered in shades of brown to give it an antique look, and in 1962 as the epitome of sleek modern design and speed.
